Crow's Next

5 out of 5

The Crow's Nest was very close to our cabin and we went there often. There was always something interesting goin on and they had a wonderful coffee and snack bar.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We loved our cabin! It is the largest we've ever had. It was an inside cabin but because of the location there was a window which made it seem very spacious. My sister had a balcony but I liked our cabin better.

Ship tip

Be sure to check out the flower arrangements, they are stunning! Go to all the fun events in the Crow's Nest, that was my favorite spot.

Ports of call

San Diego, California

Beautiful! So convenient and it seemed very clean and safe.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
I don't like using tenders but it was not unpleasant. We took a very interesting tour with a trip to San Jose del Cabo and enjoyed it very much.

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
We took a tour that went to Concordia and Copala which was very nice. I feel like I saw the "real" Mexico.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
Beautiful port! We had a private tour and the guide was terrible but we did have some nice shopping. We even went to Costco, just to check it out. It was just like home only in Spanish and pesos, but fun.


5 out of 5
Best we've ever had! No customs, we were happily surprised.
